Stealing Time

01 Oct

Posted from WordPress for BlackBerry.

In answer to the reason for my literary silence:

Sometimes it is necessary to stand still in order to move forward.
Sometimes one must quiet the mind in order to think clearly.
Sometimes we must close our ears to be able to hear, and distance our hearts that we may truly feel again.

These and others, are lessons I used to live by.

I used to take the time to contemplate and to listen. I found my peace in the eye of the storm, and in previous years there were many.

It’s funny how life can pass you by while you’re so busy doing.

Funnier still how little we move forward when we’re so busy rushing around.

I have reached a point where I will either stagnate or realise the fullness of my dreams. I can either continue to make excuses for the utter mediocrity of my life or I can make use of the lessons I learned through the fire.

I paid an enormous price for those lessons – it seems a shame to waste them.

The. quickest way to speed up, is in fact to slow down.

So for now I tread quietly, and with care.

Enjoy it while it lasts.

I am by nature a creature of loud noises and bright colour, and when I’m ready to move forward you may just miss these days.

Till then..

        That is so true. This is the time when I say you have to pull your scope in. You can’t look too far ahead or the frustration will be magnified. That’s my two cents. ; )

        agreed! 2cm in front of nose is far enough especially if one’s attempting miracles
